I used to take mine out for the winter, but the new unit we bought is still at the dealership and they leave them in for the winter.
I guess that shows that it won't hurt them at all. The only reason to take it out would be for concerns of theft, as already pointed out.

I remove our TV, DVD/CD Player and remove our media player as well. We also remove the battery, remove LP tanks (and store within its locked shed) and we remove its many other "able to walk away" items as well. Only thing we leave is its dishes and things that are bolted down. Like Microwave. So for, haven't had a thing stolen during its winter storage months.

Nothing. Just let the interior warm before turning it on after freezing weather.

What do you do with your flat screen TVs in winter?

Ok, what about storing the TVs during the hot Florida summers? That's where ours will be stored long term.

Many consumer electronics will list an operating temperature range and a more generous storage temperature range. I would consider the operating temperature range the most critical.

A consideration for anyone storing any electronics in a very cold ambient temperature is that you do need to give time for the unit to come up to a controlled indoor temperature, but not so quickly that there is condensation formed on the internal electronics. Covering it with a sheet or towel will slow down the warming process for humid situations. That is not something which should be completely ignored. I have been very surprised at how cold the deep center of our packed belongings remains with our 2 day trip from cold February Niagara Falls to the hot Florida Keys.

Consult your manual. vic

We run our heat at a low tstat setting for 24 hours before we leave the midwest for a trip south in late Jan. Also fire up the fridge so we can load frozen food etc that we want to bring with us. Obviously the heat will dissipate once we unplug and hit the road, but by our first nite's stop, we are in a more moderate location and the interior temp can be brought to a comfortable level quickly. We travel with the fridge on gas.

As previously stated, remove them if you are worried about theft since they are not heated or cooled while they are transported from the manufacturer to your retailer of choice. So long as you let it warm up or cool down before you power it up you'll be just fine.
